Supporting the independent education community

Teachers

  • Through every stage of your career, your Union is here for You, representing you industrially and professionally and supporting your individual needs in your workplace.
     
  • Pre-service teachers may access free membership during your initial teacher education degree. The Union runs a range of pre-service teacher and accreditation workshops throughout the year which you may attend.
     
  • The Union also provides a range of practical professional development and union training courses which are useful throughout your career.
  • The Union also provides a range of other popular and practical conferences and training opportunities of great value and interest wherever you are in your career.
     
  • The industrial representation provided by your Union ensures you and your colleagues maintain hard-won conditions, receive regular pay-rises and continue to make gains for your profession. For any individual needs, so long as you are already a member at the time the issue arises, the Union is just a phonecall away.  
     
  • At the end of your career, the Union is still here for you, with access to the Retired Members Association open to all retired members.
